Fall Worship/Sermon Series

Saving Places, Spaces, and Practices

For our fall preaching series we are working with a book by Barbara Brown Taylor entitled An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith.  Congregation members are encouraged to purchase the book and to read beforehand the chapters that will be the inspiration for our sermons each week. We will also be studying the book in our Sunday morning (9:30 am) and Wednesday evening (6:15 pm) adult classes.  See the schedule below for the chapters we will be addressing each week.
